Lauren Carr is one talented writer. She brings you along to find out who the killer is. One thing I love about her mysteries is that you never know who the murderer is? I have read a few of her books already and reviewed a few of them. You are welcome to read my reviews that are part of this audiobook palooza. My reviews are Cancelled Vows, A Fine Year for Murder, Killer in the Band, The Murders at Astaire Castle, Candidate for Murder, 3 Days to Forever, Kill and Run, Old Love Die Hard, 12 To Murder.

review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-07-16 12:34
Game, Set and Murder
Game, Set and Murder: A Mystery For Di Costello - Elizabeth Flynn

Petar Belic raised his racquet high in the air, his body arched back in the service motion recognizable to thousands of tennis fans around the world. His long, evenly tanned legs stretched upwards taking his feet off the ground. The sun glinted on his gold bracelet as his arm came over his head. His opponent had just enough time to register that it was going to be a smash as the racquet bore down. A nanosecond later the ball whizzed past him in a fluorescent yellow blur, crashed onto the service line and bounced out of court.

Oh, this book had so much promise...and then it caught the net a few times and slowly double-faulted its way to end. No tie break, no deuce, it just fizzled out.

 

I'm sorry, I just had to. It's the Wimbledon finals weekend and this book was just so lame. The only other thing more disappointing this morning was that my tv (or rather my freesat box) kicked the bucket - which means I have an hour to find a new one or watch the men's final at either a friends or at the tennis club...

 

Back to the book: the writing was lame, there was no atmosphere, and the D.I. dealing with the case was new in the job and pandered to constant patronising by her colleagues. Blergh.

 

What was the point that killed it off completely was the pretty huge mistake at the very end of the book where the solution is presented.

 

Stealing a diabetic's insulin will not give them a hypo. Pretty much the reverse actually. Diabetic coma induced by skyrocketing bloodsugar levels perhaps, but not a hypo.

Christmas In July – Trimmed With Murder by Sally Goldenbaum @sallygoldenbaum
Trimmed with Murder: A Seaside Knitters Mystery - Sally Goldenbaum

Welcome to Christmas in July.

 

Today I will be sharing Trimmed With Murder, Seaside Knitters Mystery #10, by Sally Goldenbaum.

 

Trimmed With Murder (Seaside Knitters Mystery, #10)

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Seaside Harbor is home of the fighting Cool Cods.

 

Just knowing that makes makes me think Trimmed With Murder will be a fun cozy mystery to curl up with on a cold winter’s night…or on the sunny beach and celebrate Christmas in July.

 

It all starts when Charlie picks Izzy up on the side of the road. Neither one of them wanted to be here, because we all know, in a small town there are no secrets.

 

Most of the characters are warm and giving…once you get to know them, but there are some with secrets to hide and will cross the line to keep them buried.

 

I feel bad for Charlie and wonder about the missing years in his life. Where has he been and why is he so different from the person they knew before?

 

And the murderer…

 

I know who I feel it could be, but there is also a deeper mystery to be solved…

 

The Knitting Club knows everyone and everything happening in town, so they figure they should be the ones to find the answers and put the town’s fears to rest, so they began to “walk the road.”  I love when a group of small town ladies get it in their heads to investigate a murder.  Some times it can be fun, other times…

 

I love stories located by the seaside. They lend an extra element to the story that makes me want to walk along the shore with this “tight knit” group of friends who care about their town and the people in it.

 

Trimmed With Murder by Sally Goldenbaum shows us that you can go home again.

 

Sally Goldenbaum has also included knitting instructions for a sailboat ornament and a recipe for pork tenderloin in Trimmed With Murder

Murder in Mayfair
Murder in Mayfair: An Atlas Catesby Mystery - D. M. Quincy

An above average historical mystery. Entertaining characters, clear writing.

 

I definitely recommend it and look forward to more.

 

I received this book free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

The Last Detective- Brian Cohn

     Mixed genre- well put together; no, very well put together. Those that love murder mystery will find themselves comfortably stationed within a science fiction world and vice versa. I love writing that can shatter walls between genres, between readers fixed ideas of like, and this book does that well.

     We are in a recently invaded world by a civilisation of ‘slicks’ that mankind is still far short of understanding. Human society is in a state of decay, if not quite chaotic dissolution, as the alien culture imposes certain disciplines whilst leaving humans with a veneer of independence. Any independence is apparently dependent on an absence of resistance. Regular mass deportations to destinations unknown, are ‘accepted’ by the human administrations. One can’t help but make comparisons between the slicks as quasi Nazi or Starlin’s cabal. Perhaps those born in this century would relate better to comparison with the current, alien to humanitarian values, regime of Kim Jong-Un.

     When an alien is apparently murdered the aliens find cause for an investigation by what remains of a human police force. Painstakingly Adrian, the last pre-invasion trained detective, puts the pieces of the case together despite the lack of resources and technologies still at his disposal.

     The principle human characters are well drawn, and the unfolding of the crime is crafted in a very compelling way. This is a case for an old-time sleuth, not a ‘slick’ crime lab. Um: pun intended.

     As an independent writer and a strong advocate of my peers, I am delighted to be able to report this book as being a good example of the quality achievable outside of the traditional publishing empires. Pandamoon are one of many new small publishers. I’m certainly not in any position to endorse them, but I can say that they have at least one good writer aboard.

     Well written and, apart from a few lapses, well edited.
